[applause] so now you have got a choice. we can gut investments in education like governor romney wants to do to pay for tax breaks for the wealthy. [boos] don't boo, vote. or we can decide that no child should have at their dream deferred because of overcrowded classrooms. no family should set aside a college acceptance letter because they don't have the money. no company should have to look to some other country because they cannot find the workers with the right skills here at home. nevada, i wanted, recruit thousands of new math and science teachers, improve early education, create 2 million more slots in communit

have? >> well, the first one is jobs. we go to college thinking that we will receive the education that will enable us to get a good paying job out of college. for the past four years, college graduates have a 30% chance that he or she will be unemployed or underemployed. that is not to acceptable. we have spent too much time and effort in college to go out into the labor market and have it to be completely unpredictable and turbulent environment for us. we think there needs to be better policies enacted for businesses to grow and higher. in addition, we are very focused on the debt and the deficit. the spending of the government is out of control. it needs to be fixed. if we keep spending, it is not sustainable. it is not fair to other generations. >> how long have you been a republican? the republican party today has a lot of diversity within it in terms of opinions of a social and economic issues. which one is the most important you about being a republican? >> i would say i became a republican when senator obama was running for presidency. that is when i was interested in polit
down the middle state? >> it is one of the best educated states in the country in terms of college graduates it is the best educated state in the country. we really are a microcosm of the country. a lot of coloradoens came from other states. and so it's a nice place to battle out the country's elections. and as you probably pointed out earlier we have gone all sorts of ways in presidential elections. we have elected democratic governors. i think the coloradoens take a look at the candidate and vote for the person they think will do the best job for colorado and the country. >> it seems to me in watching what i feel like the conversation colorado voters are having with each other is that the president thinks women voters and social issues are the key to the reelection and the romney campaign thinks talking about the deficit is a winner here. what say you? are both on the right track to get to 50? >> i think it depends on which base the two parties are trying to get out. obviously the democratic party with its so-called war on women is trying to make sure it gets the turnout from tha
from. >> absolutely. >> you've already had two. you've got a big voter education turnout drive. this one in virginia coming up. >> next tuesday, from 10:00 to 3:00, we'll be in virginia at market square from 10:00 to 3:00. voter education, voter registration. last week we were in the district. people getting registered, getting information that they need. like where's my polling place? what issues are really on the ballot? we're teaming up with the board of elections to help people. it's all about educating and informing the community. >> they said october was when everybody was going to start paying very, very close attention. >> they're watching, listening, and forming opinions. >> this is it. mollet green, thank you for coming by. >> mm-hmm. >>> the tale of the dueling divas, coming up on news4, a new video with nikki minaj screaming at mariah carey. is this an "american idol" meltdown or is it a truly made for television fight? >>> also, why dogs are good for your health. why dr. jackie tells us why your pet could help you keep from getting allergies. >>> and the chick-fil-
there tried to figure out how they're going to save for their kids' college educations, and they need a break. look. nobody likes taxes. i would for for that no one pays them including myself. we have to pay the core investments. >> the fact is businesses in america are paying the second highest tax rate of anywhere in the world. our tax rate is 30 5% pish. ireland is 37%. where are companies going to go? we need to cut the business tax rate in america. of all times in america, we need to cut people's taxes. we need to create jobs, and not spread the wealth around. debate is the first of three at the university of the dinner, focusing at domestic policy. the debate begins at 9:00 with live coverage on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.org. the next week a town hall format. all of this live on c-span. we are also bringing you live coverage of congressional debate tonight. tonight the texas senate debate with ted and cruz. then journalists and scholars will be talking about the upcoming debates. it is called a citizen's guide that helps the watch and understand the three presidential debates this
in college after the cultural revolution. this was the most liberal era in china's educational system. they were exposed to western ideas he reads english right well. now that is a wonderful opportunity. this also could be a problem because if we fail to understand, this is a generation, because of their personal experience, they do not want the electorate. they will be more conducive with giving reasoning. you just use force to intimidate them and they will react strongly. what i said is important. that if we use force, just a single-minded lecture, we're not resonating very well. they will react strongly, the hu jintao generation. i do not know if you watch the interview. this is 15 years ago. he interviewed -- in "60 minutes." michael wallace points his finger and says you're a dictator. several times he said that. he laughed. after many years, people thought his approach was very smart. it made michael wallace embarrassed. if you do the same thing with xi jinping, it will be a disaster. we need to know this kind of mindset, this kind of experience. that is why what henry kissinger
to education, health care, social issues, what have you? >> well, all those things matter, certainly when it comes to education, that's the future. i mean, the future generations will be -- will fail, rise, or fall based on education, so that's a very important building block for the country going forward. >> is that a building block for romney's campaign? >> it is. it's something he's talked about. he has an idea for americans and education that's very different from what president obama has been able to do. president obama would like also to do a lot of the school choice things that romney is talking about, but has been hampered from doing any of it. >> tonight, they will not go into the foreign policy stuff. the one part where obama is weak is this flip-flopping, if you will, on the libya stuff. that's the weakness, the nugget, if you will, the window opening. they won't go into that tonight, or they shouldn't go into it. >> thank you, guys, for the pregame. appreciate it. quick programming note. cnbc's coverage of the first presidential debate begins tonight at 7:00 p.m. eastern time.
in education and investing in infrastructure, responsibly bringing down the debt, so his is a voice that we think is a very powerful voice in helping to tell the president's story. we think he's going to be a great advocate for us. we're excited he's giving us that time and we're excited to have him out advocating for the president on the trail. >> brent, hypothetically, let's say the president is re-elected. what's his first order of business next year, is it immigration reform? is it climate change? what's going to be, jobs notwithstanding, because i know that's going to be the laser focus, presumably, besides job creation, then what? >> look, the second term, if we're lucky enough to win this campaign, really is an extension of all the work we've been doing through the first term. you said jobs, obviously. the economy is job one. we need to make sure we re-elect president obama, so we can build off the economic process we have started to see as we've turned this economy around. we need to move that forward, not go back to the policies that mitt romney is advocating that would actually hu
